Viewing Life through Rickie Goldbach
#Driverless Hearse

Remembering Evelyn Goldbach

WE BURIED MY mother, Evelyn Frances Goldbach, in the family plot today. In her memory, we have pulled together a five-minute video from dozens of photos she enjoyed viewing during her 88 years.

Download the movie clip.

This short video clip uses Mantovani's instrumental version of "Charmaine" as a backing track. The Mantovani orchestra enjoyed its first hit in the US charts in 1951. It peaked at #10 in 1952, the same time my mom and dad met each other the first time. They enjoyed hearing the song and sometimes began dancing spontaneously when they heard it on the radio. I have purchased five different versions of the song and am storing two of them on my blog as the backing track of the short slide show honouring my mother.
